No More Yelling

I haven’t been doing so great with my New Year’s resolution to stop yelling.

I haven’t thrown anything else at the wall, but that’s about as much praise as I can give myself.

Lots of yelling still going on, so on Monday I forced myself to start over. AGAIN. [Read more…]

Jessica Simpson Pregnancy Quote

Let me start by saying who would’ve thought Jessica Simpson would be able to provide such words of wisdom?? Even though due to the current weather, I’m definitely not sweating. But I also definitely don’t have a glow. Just a fat face.

Anyways, I’m torn. My due date is nine days away.

On one hand, I’m so excited to finally be done being pregnant forever meet my new baby. But on the other hand, I don’t feel quite ready. 

Last night, I definitely thought that I was maybe possibly potentially going into labor. I had crampy sensations for a few hours and that’s always what my contractions have felt like– bad menstrual cramps.

At first I got excited. This is it! The wait is over! [Read more…]

Girl, Bye (Why I’m SO Over Brandi Glanville)

Girl, Bye: Why I'm SO Over Brandi Glanville

When I stopped doing recaps of the Real Housewives shows, I decided I would only write about an episode if I was passionate about something that had happened.

After watching this week’s episode of RHOBH, I can safely say that I passionately can’t stand Brandi Glanville anymore.

In the beginning of her time on the show, I was cool with Brandi. She was fun. A partier. A wild card. 

I was growing weary of Kyle and her snobbiness. Brandi was a breath of fresh air, plus she was on #TeamLisa.  [Read more…]

On Wednesday, my 19-month-old developed a rash. It seemed harmless at first…just some red spots on his chest and back. I wasn’t concerned, because he was still getting over a virus from last week.

After some discussion via text with my husband, we figured it was either: from the amoxicillin he was taking, a reaction to different laundry detergent, or a reaction to moisturizer.

But by bath time, the rash was angry.

It was red. It was raised. It was bumpy. It had taken over his whole body, minus his cute little cheeks (thank goodness).

So I did what all modern-day moms do. I Googled “toddler rashes.” [Read more…]

Bunk Bed Baby Steps

So, um, yes we got the bunk beds and set them up and love them. But there’s one small problem…I can’t get my toddler to sleep in his bottom bunk. 

When we switched my daughter from a crib to a bed, she was almost two years old. My son is only 19 months old, which I’m guessing is part of the problem.

So why the rush? 

Well, I’m due with Baby #3 in two weeks. So I kinda need the crib back. I’ll keep the new baby in the bassinet in my room for a few weeks, but that’s it– then it’s crib time.  [Read more…]

We are currently in the process of moving my 19-month-old son out of his crib and into the bottom bunk of an adorable set of bunk beds we just purchased. 

I realize 19 months sounds a bit early, but we are about to have a baby in a few weeks…so I kind of need the crib back!

To help prepare my son, I’ve been reading Big Enough for a Bed (featuring one of his favorite characters, Elmo) every night for the past few weeks. While I was looking online for other related books, I came across a few that looked helpful and made this list of

Thinking of Getting Bunk Beds?

We purchased the Bedz King Twin Over Twin Stairway Bunk Bed from Amazon.

After using the bunk beds for the past two weeks, we are so happy with our choice. My kids love them, they look gorgeous, and they have built-in storage areas.

What sold us on this particular set of bunk beds was the fact that it has stairs, rather than the traditional ladder. [Read more…]
